    About a month ago I bought my first 1911, a LNIB Ruger Commander. I found it at a LGS, and being something that I lusted after when it was released, I bought it pretty much right on value. I shot it a couple of times, and liked it, but found that I’ve been shooting my .22 more since it’s so much...

    It started innocently enough. During the 2021 holiday season a couple of the big box stores had a deal on Kimber LW Night Patrol so on a whim I picked one up. Loved it. Quickly accumulated 4, all Kimbers of various sizes, all 45 acp. I sold the light weight as I didn’t like shooting it as much...

    I’ve got an old Colt Model 1927 Argentino that I want to refinish. It’s been reblued at some point and wasn’t done very well. I’d like to have a parkerized finish (parkerized looking at least) so I have a budget USGI A1 clone. I’ve considered getting it parkerized, but now I’m leaning more...

    For sale today is my Reid Stainless Commander in 45acp, Series 70 no firing pin safety. Only 200 rounds fired since receiving it from Jeremy. For my tastes, I consider this the ultimate carry 1911. Rust resistant stainless, Chen gen1 weld on magwell for a big funnel without the added length...

    For sale is my unfired (after leaving Jeremy's) beautiful 1978 Large Letter Colt featuring Jeremy's vision for a classic Colt finished in Ionbond DLC. This is Jeremy's "Premium Grade" build, complete build sheet below. Beautiful gun, just selling because I recently put an offer on a new house...

    Up for your consideration is a 1980 Colt MKIV Government chambered in 45 ACP. Stripped the gun down and gave it a deep clean every thing appears to be factory down to the collet bushing. Bore on barrel is clean and crisp. Gun has some light handling marks, but no major scratches or dings. Under...

    I'm looking at a three-inch Colt King Cobra at LGS. It feels a bit more petite than my K-frames. This one has the bead front sight. Anyone here have any experiences with the new King Cobras in any barrel length? thanks in advance... brent / KY

    Recently inherited this firearm, looking to see if anybody maybe knows year of production, model name, or any other info. Seems to be commander size. Feels pretty light compared to one of my all steel commander size Dan Wesson, aluminum frame maybe? I noticed a small "B" stamped onto the trigger...

    While I am waiting for two of my birth year Colts to be built by Jason, I have been revisiting two of his builds I currently have. They are the perfect balance of Simplicity and Function. Classic, yet modern at the same time. His technique consists of chipping away everything superfluous in...

    Got it! The shop called, asked if I was still interested as the seller has become motivated. I had to go take my outgoing transfer so I made an offer and he accepted. Couple of quick pics in my new post today while I’m waiting for the background check. Details and good pics in post 10 ......my...

    I’m thinking about beginning the hunt for a 2010 Colt 70 series to use as a base for a future build. I plan on a two tone w/ polished DLC slide. With that being the goal - I’m looking for advice if it makes a major difference if I start with a carbon or stainless pistol? Stainless has the...

    Hello, So my local auction has a Police confiscated gun auction coming up. Tons of nice guns to my surprise but this 1911 and a 1940 Russian SVT-40 have caught my eye. I'm just curious if this is a original Colt Black Army or one of the ones that released a few years back. I'm assuming its a...

    I have this old (1970's) Commander. It is in good shootable shape, nothing wrong with it. Looking at all the fine custom guns around here set me to thinking about sending it out for an upgrade. Maybe to Wilson? Or? I have a Colt 1902 .38ACP at Turnbull for full restoration but I don't want...

    Hello everyone, I’m new to this site and had a question for those who are knowledgeable on engravings. I’m posting some pics of my 1911 Colt Government Model. Was hoping g someone would recognize who did the engraving work on it. Also, what is the best way to fix any scratches that are on the...

    Hey there Addicts! I need some words of wisdom from the more tenured and enlightened crowd here. I currently own a single 1911, a blue SA Garrison in 45, which I really like so far. Got about 500 rounds through it (with 1 FTE) and have approached it as my learning gun. I’m a newb and its been a...

    I had a few failure to eject on the last round in the magazine with my new colt. From some googling, it seems like it could be an extractor tension issue. I'm debating what to do. I'm considering either: 1) send the gun back to Colt within warranty 2) get a local gunsmith to tune the extractor...
